Researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Colorado, have shown how electron–hole exchange interactions in quantum dots depend on the size of the semiconductor material that the dots are made of. The result not only sheds light on the origin of such interactions but also suggests that the optical properties of nanoparticles might be manipulated by simply changing their size as well as their composition.
